In order to bring stakeholders, recovery communities, state, tribal and local leaders together to increase awareness and improve response to prenatal substance use and infant exposure, the Minnesota Departments of Human Services and Health and the Great Lakes Addiction Technology Transfer Center are holding the second Minnesota Summit on Prenatal Substance Use and Infant Exposure.
- July 27-29, 2017
- Earle Brown Heritage Center, 6155 Earle Brown Drive, Brooklyn Center, Minn.
This year's theme: Strengthening the Continuum of Wellbeing and Care for Women and Their Families.
During the summit participants will hear from national and local experts and leaders on topics such as neonatal abstinence syndrome, family centered treatment/care and medication assisted treatment. The Summit will also offer a special focus on Native American communities disproportionately impacted by prenatal substance use. At the end of each day, facilitators will work with community teams to create an action plan (improving systems, recommended policy changes, including fathers/family members in programs, etc.) to work on after the summit. Support for community teams will be based on the areas of the state that they serve. Participation in the Summit from multi-disciplinary teams has been encouraged. post-summit technical assistance will be provided to these teams to further their action plans.
